Reader comment on item: Israel Has a War to Win

Submitted by B. Alotaibi (Saudi Arabia), Jul 20, 2006 at 15:16

Agree with DP points, but worry that Israel might sometime in the future exchange prisoners. This, if it happens, will be seen as victory by the terrorists regardless of their losses or the destruction of their country.

According to Al-Jazzera and other media, swapping prisoners is inevitable and just a matter of time. Israel did that in 2004; hope it won't make the same mistake again. Anything less than permanent defeat for Hezbullah is waste of time and resources. We know that this group is fighting for Syria and Iran, and ordinary Lebanese are unfortunately paying the price.
